As an SAP-certified managed service provider, Protera offers highly secure, innovative, and affordable cloud-based disaster recovery solutions for SAP applications. The company aims to help its clients identify their goals, review existing recovery plans and potential loss scenarios and pinpoint security gaps for building robust business continuity processes.
According to a recent article published by ReportLinker, the global DRaaS market is predicted to record a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of a staggering 24.62% during the projection period 2022-30. The surge in the RaaS (recovery-as-a-service) market growth is driven by the skyrocketing demand for recovery services by small and mid-sized enterprises adopting cloud technologies, the increased need for business continuity and the frequent data breach and data loss incidents.
To cope with this increasing demand for DRaaS by SMEs, Protera offers managed and custom-built solutions utilising high-end technologies. Protera SAP DRaaS solutions can efficiently automate and streamline its disaster recovery measures and be tailored to the recovery requirements of a client’s SAP landscape.
A study conducted in 2017 and sponsored by ServiceMax surveyed 450 companies worldwide and found that an overwhelming 82% of the total evaluated enterprises have undergone at least one unexpected downtime over the period between 2014 and 2016. The impacts of such unscheduled downtimes are massive–negative brand equity, slumped ROI, lowered consumer satisfaction, and loss of production capacity that can set industrial manufacturers back as much as $50 billion a year.
Any organisation that utilises SAP as its critical IT system and needs to secure its data from loss should invest in a robust SAP disaster recovery solution.
The company highlights the industry standards that make a high-end disaster recovery solution package. A RaaS provider should have a solid and proven track record and offer options for customised strategy and solution building.
Protera claims its comprehensive disaster recovery solutions can best meet the business continuity requirements of enterprises running SAP as their core system and eliminate the intricacy, expenditure, and risk associated with operating conventional DR systems in a secondary location.
The Protera recovery solutions are delivered as a service, using SAP disaster recovery instances on private or public cloud infrastructure, and can constantly sync application and data changes made from the publication system to the disaster recovery instances.
The company adds that application recovery on Protera cloud infrastructure offers the advantages of shared tenancy–reduced overhead and greater efficiency–combined with agility, rapid recovery, virtualisation, and enhanced performance and scalability.
